BANGKOK, January 06, 14:16 /ITAR-TASS/. An Airbus A380 of Singapore Airlines flying from London to Singapore that made an emergency landing in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku last night needed repairs and could not continue its flight, a spokesman for Azerbaijan Airlines, Magerram Safarli, said on Monday.
“The plane needs repairs, therefore another plane from Singapore is flying to carry passengers to their place of destination,” he said, adding that all passengers had been accommodated in an airport hotel in Baku and provided with everything necessary for life, including hot meals and water.
A second plane from Singapore is expected to leave Baku at 17:30 local time.
Singapore Airlines Ltd. said in a statement earlier on Monday its plane made an emergency landing in Baku due to cabin depressurization. There were no injuries to the 467 passengers and 27 crewmembers onboard.
